Ungstrup (30990) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2010
Draft. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of butterscotch. The flavor is sweet with notes of butterscotch and nuts, leading to a dry buttery finish. In my opinion it was off.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Draught at the giants brewfest. Dark red with a light beige head. Toasty and lightly roasted malt aroma. The flavor has a sweet toasty caramel sweetness and a dry toasty, almost roasted malt edge that reminds me a lot more of a brown than a red. A little lacking on body and mild on the hops. An odd brown-red hybrid type ale that could use a healthy hop balance.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and deep amber, golden, and with a small tan head. Toffee butterish and slight roasted caramel/breadish malt aroma. Sweet malty flavoured, light roasted note and a hint of liqourice. Butter notes disappear in the flavours. Ends mild bitter and with a reappearing butterish note from back of the nose.
